Once again, dust proved to be our companion at Devil's Ridge. I know that many of you thought with Hurricane Irma, we would have a mud race, didn't happen. Crazy how weathermen make you think that an area is getting 10 inches of rain and end up getting 1 inch. Some things are not controlled by man.
Woodruff will be a happening track. Track crew will be there at the first of the week getting everything ready for the weekend. As always, I will post the information about the track once I get mileage figured out.
I know that many of you have questions about how the drops will work and how overalls will be figured. I pulled this from the rules that are posted on this website:
To receive points, a rider must make at least one lap.
To be eligible for end-of-year awards, a rider must have completed at least TWELVE of the sixteen events for points. These events must be in the SAME class. Class Championships will be decided by the points accumulated in a rider’s best twelve finishes. A rider must have completed at least one lap to receive numerical points for an event. However a DNF, does count as an event. Points are based on actual finishing positions at each event.
UTV's must run SEVEN of the ten events in the same class. Pro's must have completed EIGHT of the ten events
Pro’s and Expert’s class points will be based on best fourteen finishes out of sixteen events.
Overall points will be based on best fourteen finishes for the sixteen events. Must run at least TEN races. However, a DNF does count as an event.
Drops were showing on some when results posted from Devils Ridge. This has been corrected and drops will not start showing until after the Woodruff race. Sorry for the confusion but we failed to change a number in the program.
As you go through your daily routines, please remember Mike Berry, Chase Repass, Doug Cook, David Lane and I am sure there are others that I failed to mention in your prayers. Each and everyone of us need prayer everyday we live.
Thank you for your support of the Mideast Series! I appreciate each and everyone of you! In my opinion Mideast has the best riders and the best staff in the southeast!!
Be kind and courteous to those that you meet on your daily journey. You don't know what they are going through and your smile may be the best part of their day.
